Abstract:

OPEN LITERATURE SOURCES SUCH AS TECHNICAL JOURNALS, TRADE MAGAZINES AND NEWSPAPERS ROUTINELY CONTAIN INFORMATION ON U.S. STRATEGIC MISSILE SYSTEMS. THE INFORMATION RELEASED THROUGH THESE SOURCES WHEN USED SINGLY, IN COMBINATION, OR IN CONJUNCTION WITH DATA OBTAINED THROUGH MONITORING TEST SHORTS INTO KWAJALEIN CAN BE POTENTIALLY VERY DAMAGING TO THE U.S.. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP A METHODOLOGY FOR ASSESSING THE VALUE OF SUCH DATA TO AN OPPOSING INTEL-LIGENCE SERVICE AND THE VALUE TO THE U.S. OF REVEALING OR DENYING SUCH DATA ON OUR STRATEGIC SYSTEMS. UNDER THIS PHASE I EFFORT, A LITERATURE SEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE KINDS OF INFORMATION WHICH HAVE BEEN RELEASED ON A REPRESENTATIVE U.S. MISSILE SYSTEM AND AN ASSESSMENT OF THE VALIDITY OF THIS INFORMATION. THIS WILL BE COMBINED WITH ASSESSMENTS OF MEASUREMENT CAPABILITIES AGAINST U.S. TEST SHOTS TO DETERMINE THE OVERALL VALUE OF THE INFORMATION TO AN OPPOSING INTELLIGENCE SERVICE. THESE RESULTS WILL BE USED TO DETERMINE THE VALUE OF THE U.S. OF REVEALING/DENYING SUCH DATA TO THE SOVIETS AND TO DEVELOP A PRIORITIZED LIST OF SPECIFIC DATA ELEMENTS WHICH SHOULD BE CLOSELY HELD.
